When you are being charged with a federal crime, your attorney’s honesty is crucial. In order to make the right decisions about your case, you need to know the truth about how the law might affect you — not just hear empty promises. The truth is that some clients have to realistically face the possibility of conviction. At the Atlanta-area Law Firm of Shein & Brandenburg we make a great effort to help you.
In federal circuit courts, many cases are resolved through plea and sentencing. Making the choice to plead guilty and mitigate the outcome by the plea process is a difficult decision. At the Law Firm of Shein & Brandenburg, one of our great strengths is negotiating with prosecutors to get you the best possible results. We are well versed in federal sentencing guidelines, departures and mitigation, and use that information to your advantage.
